And a license for Saxo. So all Contador fans can hold their panties dry

10.12.2012
As of 2nd November, the UCI had registered in the first division the teams already holding a current UCI WorldTour licence and whose applications satisfied the registration conditions set out in the UCI regulations.

The following teams were concerned:
Astana Pro Team
BMC Racing Team
Cannondale
Lampre – Merida
Omega Pharma – Quick Step Cycling Team
ORICA GreenEDGE
Sky Procycling
Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team
Movistar Team (UCI decision of 16 November)

In accordance with the UCI regulations, the Licences Commission was requested by the UCI administration to adjudicate on the refusal to register as well as the issuing of the UCI WorldTour licence to applying teams.
As a result of the hearings held on 19, 21, 22, 28 November and 7 December, the Licences Commission has issued a UCI WorldTour licence to the following teams:
AG2R La Mondiale 2013-2016
Euskaltel Euskadi 2013-2016
Former Rabobank 2013-2014
Garmin Sharp 2013-2014
Team Argos–Shimano 2013-2016
Team Saxo – Tinkoff 2013-2014

Finally, the Licences Commission has granted registration for the 2013 season to the following teams:
FDJ
Lotto Belisol
RadioShackNissan
The request from the team Katusha for registration in first division has been rejected.

In accordance with UCI regulations, this team’s application has been forwarded to the UCI administration, so that the latter may assess the possibility of registering this team as a UCI Professional Continental Team.
The full list of UCI Professional Continental Teams registered for 2013 will be announced at a later date.

Apparently the team have not been told why yet.

I would rather say that Purito is sad that he didn't manage to jump ship last year.

Without turning this into clinic material, Katusha might want to reconsider their staff selection next time.

Also interesting that Rabobank got a 2 year license. What are they going to do with it in 2014?

The UCI probably got some advance information about the Mantova investigation regarding Katusha.

Something tells me the ethical reasons let Katusha down... Which, in many ways, sounds reasonable.

Tinkov was never found of Katusha, maybe he has something to do with this.

So the UCI invents a stupid World Tour league and then keeps the former winner from it? Genius.

Apperently firing Holczer and financial irregularities are the cause.
